Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education (RISTEKDIKTI) issued a new regulation No. 9 of 2018 concerning on Accreditation of Scientific Journal and Policy in Journal Processing. In conjuction with Scientific Publication Development Institute (LPPI) of University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM), the socialization and submission of journal accreditation for East Java region were held on Friday (23/8) at UMM Engineering Hall.
The event was attended by 76 Journal writers from state and private universities in 11 cities in East Java. "A journal is a work from a lecturer as an educator and scientist. As a scientist, we have a duty to develop knowledge. The way to develop this knowledge is through research on which the results must also be published," said UMM Vice Rector 1.
Dr. Lukman as Head of Subdivision of DIKTI Scientific Journal Facilitation delivered this socialization to discuss how DIKTI is ready to assist all lecturers in producing good and accredited scientific journals at national or international levels.
"We have prepared free fees, written guides, and server assistance for universities that do not even have a server, so that scientific works in Indonesia continually increase and improve," said Dr. Lukman to motivate the lecturers present.
Not only the socialization of new rules about scientific journals, but there were also 76 journals that have been categorized into second until sixth place which will be awarded in the form of accreditation. This accreditation is expected to be a benchmark for lecturers to be able to produce better quality journals to renew their accreditation rankings.
This event is very important. In addition to introducing new rules issued by DIKTI, this event is also able to help lecturers to understand how to apply good and true scientific journals so the lecturers continue to develop better in the field of science. (ard)
